1. That's pretty cool.
Where did you make that? You should try taking a picture of the whole thing.

3. It was too big!

I couldn't fit it all into the frame without perspective squashing the top so you couldn't see anything...

I have more piccies. Will put later in thread after I have uploaded to flickr...

24. What kind of dragon are you?

Chinese horoscopes have an element along with the animal. I'm a Metal Dog.

I think the elements are Wood, Stone, Metal, Water and Fire...

30. This one took me 3 days

But I never really thought of it as finished...

I keep meaning to take a week over one and do it "properly"...

Artistes. Never satisfied... (staples hand to forehead)

Chasing me from one thread to another! It's like being stalked. A bit.

But thank you, anyway. :-)

41. Me and some pals built a little stone garden near the King's Caves

on Arran.

We were hoping to start a tradition of building such things there and maybe turn a chunk of that stretch of beach into one giant stone sculpture garden but geocache wouldn't let us.

pout.

42. this IS cool
You're an artist! Ever thought of working with rocks to make other art? You could make some money if you market it right.

44. Wel I thought about that but was a bit pessimistic

Firstly you've got to know your market and I haven't a clue who would WANT such a thing. I'd probably have to cement it in which wouldn't be hard but it might not work, etc. I always think f the drawbacks in these things first...

Still I suppose a website wouldn't hurt, huh?

46. Trust me, someone would.
Try selling some stone artwork on Ebay, first of all. you never know who'd pay even $100.00 for something nice for their garden. I'd say contact some of the local art galleries and get in contact with local "artistic" folk. Somebody there has to have connections and might like what they see and push your name around.
